Though there is speculation that the BF4 footage they showed was on the pc version.

PS4 day one, I was hoping more £325 but £349 is great also, just happy it's not over £400.

Was originally tempted to get an X1 pretty early, but after a couple turnoffs, being unimpressed with the PS4 (and lack of trust of Sony in general) and both console's titles, it's a no for me. Mayyybe down the road I may give them another look. Might have to finally get a 360 just for giggles though. Super late adopter.

Part of me says, "do it. Get it as soon as you see it." The more cautious side of me says, "hold off for a bit and see what happens. You still have your PS3 after all."

I guess we'll see which side wins. :laugh:

I usually buy within the first 6 months to a year. Depends how excited I am for the console, the pricing & launch lineups.

I'm only pre-ordering because I don't fancy leaving it to chance like the 360 & sitting outside stores in the freezing cold in November/December again. Not sure the hype will be the same this time around though for either console.

Might be. Former generations didn't last eight years and the current ones really aren't cutting it for modern AAA games.

At the moment i will be an early adopter of both consoles.
Part of me is saying, upgrade my PC.

Another part of me is saying, give up on gaming.

I used to be an early adopter of tech back in the 90's. Then learned from that mistake and now tend to wait a year or so.

I won't be buying the XB1. I'll buy the PS4 when a PS4-only game comes out that I want to play (I'm looking at you God of War).

Well God of War: Ascension just came out so it will probably be quite a while before another God of War game is made.

Yeah I know, but the only reason I bought a PS3 in the first place was because it had GOW3 on it.

In the past, I have always waited to buy the next playstation. It took many years the ps3 to evolve and mature. I bought a ps3 finally in 2010 when gran turismo 5 came out as well as the cheaper slim ps3 model. The ps3 will live on as long as having fun does.

This guy. :laugh:

And I decided since their release is so close to the holidays, which my birthday happens to be December 21st 4 days before Christmas, I will buy myself the PS4, and ask for my family members to all chip in and get the XBox One as my combined birthday/christmas gift, so I plan on having both now. I feel better receiving gifts of things I did not necessarily want to spend the money on myself but have others get it for me. Even if I barely have time to play either these days.


My Birthday is just after Xmas, so I'll be using the same plan :D
